— Authorities have charged a Rocky Mount man with indecent exposure and taking indecent liberties with a child.

A 13-year-old girl said that while walking Sunday along the 200 block of S. Pearl St. she was approached by a man who made sexual comments to her.

The suspect, later identified as Lawrence Johnson Jr., also exposed himself to her, police said.

The victim ran away and called authorities.

Johnson, 54, was arrested at his home. He was being held Monday at the Nash County Jail under a $25,000.
